      I recommend caution when tying to the pillar between front and back
      seats. The seal or the pillar itself can be bent or harmed by hammock
      support ropes or straps. Be careful with your pretty trucks.

      I have tied to the roll cage of my Jeep and to boards in the holes
      designed to take them in the bed of a truck.
